Isaac Hayes And David Porter: Wrap It UP - The Isaac Hayes And David Porter Songbook (CD)

(Ace Records) 24 tracks

Their partnership lasted barely four years and just over 50 songs - but between 1965 and 1969, Isaac Hayes and David Porter wrote some of the most enduring soul anthems of their era, many of which are still regularly played and recorded today.

Ace is pleased to welcome them to our popular Songwriters series this month with "Wrap It Up," a fantastic collection that includes nearly half of the songs they wrote together - in versions you'd expect and ones you wouldn't!

Hayes and Porter wrote for nearly every major act on the Stax roster, but the commercial appeal of their songs also made them interesting to artists who operated outside the confines of soul music. ZZ Top, Peter Frampton, the (Count) Bishops and Charlie Rich are just a few of the standout artists featured here alongside Stax greats like Johnnie Taylor, Mable John, The Emotions, The Soul Children, Otis Redding and Carla Thomas. And, of course, Sam and Dave, whose recordings of their songs established Hayes and Porter as peerless songwriters in the first place.

As lovingly curated and expertly annotated as one would expect from an Ace Project in the Songwriter Series, "Wrap It Up" is another valuable piece in the great American songwriting puzzle, and a collection in which the songs that weren't necessarily big hits are in no way inferior to those that were. It's a fitting acoustic tribute to two men who together have won just about every major award, from Grammys to election to the Songwriters' Hall of Fame.

Isaac Hayes

Isaac Hayes, born on August 6, 1938 in Covington, Tennes-', learned to play piano and saxophone in his teens. He Sang in local clubs and cut his first discs in 1962 for tiny labels. They were mainly Brook Benton imitations. A long-standing friendship with David Porter led him to join Stax Records as a writer/producer. The Hayes /Porter working partnership led to gold records for Sam and Dave (`Hold On I'm Coming' and 'Soul Man') and proved to be one of the key factors in the emergence of the Memphis Sound. When the Gulf and Western Corporation bought Stax in 1968, the label was asked for 30 albums, so Hayes cut an album himself — Hot Buttered Soul.

Unlike its predecessor (the jazz-styled Presenting Isaac Hayes), it was complex, sophisticated, sensuous and highly controlled, a watershed between the old, raunchy Stax sounds, and the later `sophistisoul' releases. Hot Buttered Soul was an immediate success and subsequent albums featuring extended raps, huge orchestrations and pungent rhythm tracks quickly made Hayes into a superstar, culminating in Black Moses. When asked to write the score for the film Shaft, Hayes created a double set that some consider his masterpiece, and estab-lished his name internationally.

However, despite his Wattstax movie appearance, subse-quent albums on Stax (including two tepid film scores) failed to sell like Hayes' earlier discs (or those of a new sophistisoul star, Barry White). Hayes finally left Stax in 1974 after a publicized royalties wrangle. Early in 1975 he signed with ABC Records and the success of his Chocolate Chip album indicated that the bald-headed, chain-vested prophet of Middle American soul could rediscover his immense audience.
